    Its so dang hot and humid, I got bored sitting inside .
    So...
    I love leather.. and when I have time , I find STUFF to do with it.
    Also Im cheep, I could buy one, but thay cost money, I got about 2 dollars into this one.

    I Got me this idear , and couldnt let it go until I tried it.
    Now, this is my first attempt , so You know ,and I know, things are better with practice.

    But what do yall think about this, Butt Cuff ?

    I have a few other rifle guns that could wear one...... maybe even a ammo holder, hummm.

    I havent even shot this Buffalo gun yet, but soon , it will get a workout.

    Very nice work. Did you free hand the buffalo? You could definitely sell those. I'd like to know if you could do different designs.

    Thanks guys,

    Idid not do it free hand... I pulled the pic off the interweb, traced it, burned it, then oiled it.

    It was just a boredom project , just for that Buffalo Classic rifle.

    It was fun,
    It was a lot of time and work.

    You can buy a whole pack of leather scraps at Hobby Lobby for like $6.
    They have the needles and wax threads also.

    Well I'm impressed. I wish I had more time to be creative like that.

    Sure you can.

    But, ya gotta go to Hobby Lobby,....thats the worst part.

    Buy a bag of scrap leather pieces, a needle and wax thread.

    6-7 bucks, and go home and practice., its fun.

    Go ahead.
